🗣Noise Sensitivity 👂

I am super noise sensitive since my TBI. I also understand how lucky I am to hear as some lose their ability to hear. But it does not mean being noise sensitive is a blessing at all.

It gets so bad and then crates a storm of issues like irrationality, frustration and crying. I freak out and cannot take it. Not to mention not getting sleep is awful too especially with brain injury. I so feel for those who don’t sleep well, it’s so common and I’m a wreck without my sleep. I’m a wreck anyways but adding no sleep in oh my.

My husband is watching a movie, I’m freaking out. It’s too loud although he has turned it down again and again and is having trouble hearing it.

So I put my earplugs in I bought. I have noise canceling headphones too. And if neither work, I will leave the room because it is making me so irritable and frustrated.

We have a drop from our gutter due to the rain and the way the gutter is angled. Drip. Drip. Drip. Every freaking night. Help noise sensitivity. I didn’t sleep well all week and normally sleep out cold every night. Rest is a must. It will be fixed soon and I am so lucky to spend the weekend at the beach house and my husband is sleeping in the camper with the dogs so I can catch up on my sleep. So thankful for such an understanding man in my life.

I just can’t believe how bad noise is to me now. Things you definitely don’t think about until you injury your brain and are affected by these types of things.

I am a TBI Survivor and woman who has been through a lot of good and bad. My goal by this blog is to share what I have learned and how life has happened for me and not to me. I have found purpose in it all and am here to share it. I am also sober and quitting drinking was the best choice for me. I will post about TBI, Brain Injury, life, travel, lessons learned and more. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am a traumatic brain injury survivor who has lived 40 years of life and have an amazing mindset from it all. None of this is medical advice, that is what your doctor is for or 911 if you are having an true emergency and need help right away. I am here for community and to share all I have learned, you never know who it will help.
